Konosuke HD 240 was the first Japanese gyuto that I bough. It feels like it was ages ago, yet in fact less then half a year have passed since. And it feels like ages my Konosuke was laying around without handle, cause I failed with rehandling several times. Now this is my third handle for this knife. Finally I'm pretty happy with how it went, so why not share some photos.

Same coffee beans (http://www.kitchenknifeforums.com/showthread.php/17015-few-coffee-bins-shots-(photos-heavy)) as last time and beautiful wood from Mark Farley (http://www.burlsource.us/servlet/StoreFront).

It was a sunny day and that ringed gidgee really shined. ♥

Love the handle. What materials did you use for this besides the ringed gidgee?

Thanks!
Materials in order of appearance from top to bottom: 2 tone ebony, corian, vulcanized fibre for thin black spacer and beautiful piece of ringed gidgee for the main part.
